What isn't defined? I thought we'd resolved all the SVG/CSS integration 
points a while back. There's nothing special about HTML here, as far as I 
can tell. It's just a DOM, styled with CSS. You'd have the same problems 
defining how things interact with just random XML and CSS, no?

If there are specific things that need defining then I'm definitely happy 
to help define them. I'm just not aware of anything being left undefined 
any more.
